2019/20 US Fellows Orientation in Israel

"Entrepreneurship & Innovation from Tel Aviv to the Periphery" was the orientation's theme, which started in Tel Aviv with a presentation by Ziv Nevo-Kulman, Head of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Bureau of Cultural Diplomacy and a member of our Fulbright Israel Board of Directors. After lunch, we headed up north visiting Sindyanna of Galilee and the Ami Trail, looking towards the Jordan River. The next morning we woke up before sunrise to watch the spectacular phenomenon of migrating cranes at the Agamon Hula Nature Park. We also stopped at Metula to view the northern border and a visited the Sea of Galilee before returning to Tel Aviv.



Anticipating and Responding to Mental Health Issues in Study Abroad in Israel

Together with the Embassy of the United States in Israel, and in partnership with the Forum on Education Abroad, we hosted a two-day workshop for administrators, faculty, and staff of study abroad programs at Israeli higher education institutions that receive students from the U.S. How to work with US students to promote disclosure and collaboration regarding mental health challenges was a major topic covered, as well as how to work with faculty and staff so they understand their responsibilities and develop skills associated with supporting students.
